The Biggest Loser: Temptation Nation lost Whitney Clay during the first half of Monday night's double-episode broadcast on NBC.
Whitney, a 30-year-old nanny from Raleigh, NC, became the second contestant ousted from The Biggest Loserafter she fell below the yellow line by posting one of the two lowest weight-loss percentages on her team. Her teammates then voted her out instead of Jacky Kmet, a 42-year-old high school counselor from Hainesport, NJ, who was also in jeopardy.
Dolvett Quince's team lost the weigh-in to fellow trainer Jen Widerstrom's team. Dolvett's entire team posted a 1.85% weight-loss percentage compared to Jen's 2.09%.
On the losing team, Whitney lost zero pounds and stayed at her initial weight of 243 pounds. Jacky dropped from 290 to 287 pounds, losing three pounds and posting a 1.03% weight-loss percentage.
Felicia Buffkin just barely escaped the yellow line after she lost four pounds, falling from 220 to 216 pounds and posting a 1.82% weight-loss percentage.
Tonsheia "Toy" Grandison dropped from 308 to 302 pounds, shedding six pounds and posting a 1.95% weight-loss percentage.
Richard Hatch shed seven pounds and posted a 2.33% weight-loss percentage after dropping from 301 to 294 pounds.
Erin Willett, who lost six pounds, fell from 228 to 222 pounds. She posted a 2.63% weight-loss percentage.
Stephen Kmet lost the most weight on his team. He fell from 298 to 289 pounds. He lost nine pounds and posted a 3.02% weight-loss percentage.
Surprisingly, Dolvett's team lost the weigh-in even though they won a trivia and food-eating challenge and were therefore able to pinpoint a player on the other team whose weight wouldn't count. Dolvett's team agreed Colby Wright should sit out since he'd probably lose a significant number of pounds.
During the trivia contest, one player from each team went head to head at a time answering questions related to fatty dishes of food. The player to win a round would earn one point, and then his or her team could make two members from the opposing team eat that particular unhealthy dish.
At one point, Dolvett and Jen could step in and eat something for his or her team. If players refused to eat, they'd receive a one-point penalty. No one, however, refused to eat during the challenge.
In a post-The Biggest Loser update, Whitney started the competition weighing 253 pounds and dropped to 222 pounds. She lost a total of 31 pounds and now enjoys running and trying new workouts. Whitney is also dating and trying to find a boyfriend.
